Posted on 04/13/2015

The Puyallup School Board will honor this year's Teachers of the Year at its next meeting on Monday, April 20.

The board meeting begins at 6 p.m. at Glacier View Junior High, 12807 184th St. E., Puyallup.

Aylen Junior High teacher Desiree Carson and Firgrove Elementary teacher Sara Deaver are this year’s Puyallup School District Teachers of the Year. The two educators learned of their awards during the past week during surprise announcements at all-school staff meetings.

 

Superintendent Tim Yeomans congratulated each of the winners, who received cheers from their colleagues and a basket of flowers from the school district.

 

Carson teaches four periods of science to ninth graders, as well as one period of Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) to seventh and eighth graders. She also facilitates an intervention reading group three days a week.

 

Deaver is a third-grade teacher at Firgrove Elementary School.
